It is tlic last day of school. The curtains part and disclose a group of students
loaded on a Lovell Bus. The pupils in this environment soon forget their new
role — promotion to sophomore dignity. They are boisterous and gay in the June
Barbara: Gosh, how many new things we've learned this last year! Remember
how it took me epiite a while to get accustomed to the idea of not going
home for lunch?
Bob: You're lucky if that's all that happened to you. If you could have been
with me when f sauntered into a senior study room! Boy, the looks those
seniors gave me!
Barbara: What a swell track team we had this year! The team had a wonder-
ful time on their nip to New York after winning the Class B title.
Bob: Hey, J wonder if they still have those gruesome pictures that were taken
for the office record?
Barbara: Some permanent record, what? Our marks, plus those pictures!
Answer — minus.
Bob: Did you go to the Senior Play, "Growing Pains," this year?
Barbara: Yes, I did. That was certainly a real success under the helpful super-
vision of Miss Chase.
Bob: We had a great deal of excitement this year. Wally Lang's being captain
of the football team sure helped score twenty-nine straight wins before
losing a game to Quincy.
Barbara: Did yo\x go to the Senior Prom? That was really sharp.
Bob: Yes, and f was late getting there because of a Hat that night on my friend's
Barbara: That was tough. Speaking of luck, I' 11 bet the fellows on the football
team missed not having the banquet this year; but during war times a
shortage of food is to be expected.
Bob: Remember the new Aviation Course that was introduced with Mr. Ghiorse
as chief pilot?
c^Vj Page Fifteen
Barbara: Of course we couldn't take- it our freshman year, but some ol the boys
Bob: If I remember correctly, Ralph Amabile and Alan Dewey flubbed around
some on the baseball diamond.
Barbara: Not to change the subject, Bob Vergobbi was our sole representative
on the wrestling team and Slim LuscOmbe also made a hit on the track and
cross country teams.
Bob: Well, we've certainly enjoyed out Inst years, especially when wc had some
say voting for the Student Council Members. It was excitin» to find out that
Eddie Caracciolo, Jean Cross, Alan Dewey, Margie Kelly, and you wen
elected. (Scream of brakes)
Barbara: Here we go again!
Bob: What do you mean? Here we stop again. This is getting monotonous: but it's
walking for us again. What crates!
A group of newly graduated sophomores, drinking cokes, are seated on stools
as the curtain parts.
Filly: Going out for cheerleader again this fall, Keby?
Keby: Sure, I certainly want to continue supporting our various teams. They've
certainly done well this year.
Bobby: Our track team is doing swell. They got second place in the State meet
Keby: As usual our football team got top honors, working with Coach Arlanson.
Filly: Bruce made a good showing, piling up all those touchdowns.
Keby: The Athletic Banquet wasn't so hot this year, though. We certainly hated
to say good-bye to H. Arlanson.
Filly: All our teams need backing. We mustn't forget our basketball and baseball
Bobby: You can say that again. Our teams have as much spirit as any of the other
South Shore teams.
Filly: The Weymouth Highlights was a real success.
Keby: You bet it was! The boys all over the world got a "kick" when they got a
newspaper from their good old alma mater.
Page Sixteen r \&-?
Bobby: I think thai the strangest evenl was the hoisting of an Army training plane
onto the second floor.
Filly: I'll never forgei that. The kids taking the Aviation (ionise were as excited
as a gang of jitterbugs at a jam session.
Keby: The skit of Coac h Arlanson's life, pul on by the loot hall players, was a howl.
Bobby: We had a lot of swell activities dining the year. The Victory Dance in
December and the Senior Play, "Woman of Fifteen," were both good.
Filly: Don't forget the Senior Prom. The committee did a keen job and helped
to make it a real success.
Bobby: I think we elected a swell student council in our freshman year.
Filly: You're not kidding! Eddie, Barb, Al, Margie, and Jean did a grand job.
Klby: Well, 1 guess it's time to go home to supper. I hope we have as good a
time next year as we had this.
Bobby: Just think! We're really upper classman now.
Filly: I can hardly wait to get back. So long, kids!
As the curtains part we behold two important juniors, chewing the rag in
their accustomed haunt. The checkerhoard has heen pushed aside as a clanging
upsets their meditations.
Ralphie: Just think, Jean, we have only one more year of high school!
Jean: It all seems to have gone so quickly, although I will say that we've had
some pretty good times these past years.
Rai.phie: I'll say. It certainly was an honor to be elected Class President; and I
know Dick, Barb, and Frank feel the same about their offices. Remember
the swell Junior Party we had? The Junior Nominating Committee and the
Junior Party Committee certainly gave us a time to remember.
Jean: That party really brought out some of the good talent that wc have in
our class. Eleanor McCafferty's songs were wonderful.
c^SV. Page Seventeen
RAlphie: How about Betsy Clark's dancing?
Jean: Yes, she was all right. And wasn't Lambie Koopman a riol s nging "Second
(Dick McCarthy and George M(Kinn\ enter)
Dick: Hey, what are you two doing all the talking about?
Jean: Oh, hi, kids! We were just reminiscing over all the good times we had our
Dick: We had a pretty good football team this year, didn't we? Bobby Clark sun
played some swell games. He's in the Air Corps now.
Ralphie: Bruce Hunt was one of our stars. The other teams d dn't have an\ man
to equal him.
Jean: Keby and Barb added their efforts with Marge and Shirley as cheerleaders to
support the team. Topsy Dewey, Nancy Page, Evelyn Anderson, and I were
Dick: Remember the Hingham game? The field was almost a swamp. It was so
wet that Weymouth had to start the second hall in old suits.
Rai.phie: Our wrestling team was good, too. For such a little fellow, "Diver" Swan
certainly put up a good light.
Dick: Our track team won the Class B State Championship again. We had plent\
of stars: "Slim" Luscombe and Bob Dominy, both in the serv ice: together w.th
Roger Freeman, John Donovan, and Carl MacKen/ie.
Ralphie: Bob Dominy won every race in cross country.
George: It seems to me the basketball team was pretty good. Don't forget Bob
Kjellman and Bruce Hallgren played on the team. They're from Trade, you
Jean: Everybody got a lot of enjoyment from the concert. Mr. Jack certainly did
a wonderful job for his first year at Weymouth High.
George: Four kids in our class at trade sang in the choir: Paul Doble, Presley Fostei .
John McCarthy, and Darrell Smith. Well, see you later, kids!
Jean: Oh, going down to see your girl?
Jean: Silence is golden. (Exit, George)
Dick: I hear the Student Council next year is really going to town. With Frank
Aiello, Helen Andersson, Ed Caracciolo, Marge Kelly and Barbara Loud on
the council, they ought to fetch the corner, too.
Ralphie: I thought the seniors were pretty good to invite us on their outing.
Dick: I wonder how many actually suffered ill effects from that ti\p to Province-
Ralphie: How about the effects that graduation had on (he poor ushers. Frank,
you and I suffered almost as much as the graduates; and I guess the others did,
Page Eighteen 'XJi-'
Jean: Gee, we did have some good Limes didn'i we? I wonder il our last year will
be as eventful as our junioi year.
The house lights dim for the fourth and last act, the foot lights come up as
Ed Caracciolo, president ol the .Student Council and Margie Kelly, secretary,
step in front of the curtain.
Ed: Well, Marge, after four years of work and worry we finally made il.
Marge: We've really had an interesting and successful year.
En: Our football team got off to a slow start, but did all right lor itself under
the leadership of Paul Sweeney.
Marge: The Thanksgiving rally was one I'll never forget. Remember Jimmie
Casey as Ping Pong, the Chinaman?
En: Do I! Mr. Ghiorse and Miss Toomey did a lot of work on that.
Marge: Ed, how about giving a resume of the games.
Ed: Curtain! Pake it away Legion Field. The band sitting in the grandstand
strikes up "Maroon and Gold" under the masterful baton of Mr. Jack. In
front of the stands are six drum majorettes in dazzling white uniforms led
by Kay Madden in her maroon and gold. The cheerleaders break out in
"The Weymouth Locomotive" led by co-head cheerleaders Margie Kelley
and Shirley Osborn. The cheer. ng squad is going to lose five pretty nice
members: Marge, Shirley. Barbara Loud, Helen Keblis, and Jean Keohan.
And now the game has started. Hank Minasian centres the ball, Captain
Bruce Hunt gets it. and he's oil lor a touchdown. Little Jimmie Covency
comes up and tries a drop kick lor the point alter and — it's good! Now
lake over Weymouth High. Curtain.
Marge: Even if Weymouth was a bit slow in starting, we ended the season
with a smashing victory over Hingham.
Ed: Remember the .Athletic Dance, we gave in honor of the team? That was spon-
sored by the Student Council. Don't forget. Then too our Christmas Party,
under the direction of Miss Pearson, was a success, even though it was post-
poned a couple of times.
Marge: They gave a play "Why the Chimes Rang" at the Christmas Assembly,
which really touched the heart. It was a 1 ttle different from the plays and
rallies that have been given other years. Miss Chase directed it.

George: Don't forget ii was the Trade School; the) pui up the scenery loi the
Ed: One of the senior events in Trade School was the election ol officers. Who
are the officers, George?
George: (blushing) Well, I — a — I'm president, 15.11 Mac Donald is vice president,
and Bruce Hallgren is secretary-treasurer.
Marge: My, what a modest president the Trade School lias!
George: Say, who were the Spelling Bee Champions in your lour years at high
Ed: Arlene Boeckel in our Freshman Year, Evelyn Newell in our Sophomore
Year, Dorothy Perett Junior year, and Dick Whittle this last year.
Marge: In January Mr. Jack gave a concert with the choir, band, and orchestra.
Marge Abbott and Eleanor McCafferty helped to make it a success. The
senior ushers looked attractive in their evening gowns.
Ed: The Senior Play came next — "Every Family Has One.'' Ii was one of the
best plays presented at W. H. S. The play-reading committee certainly made
a wise choice.
Marge: This is the first year they had a Play Reading Committee. It's a good
idea. I hope they continue it. We certainly uncovered a lot of talent the
night of the play. Ginnic Kaiajian certainly stole the show. And, of course
we can't forget the job Lambie Koopman did. The whole cast was good:
Margie Abbott, Phyllis Vachon, Carol Corridan, Helen Keblis, Betty Paul-
son, John Pappas, Russ Shaw, Bob Karnan, Darrell Smith, and jimmie
Casey. They all deserve a hand; but the most thanks go to Miss Chase, who
George: There you go again, leavin' out about all the work Trade School
did on the Senior Play.
Ed: Well, don't leave out Miss Mayo: she did a lot of work on the properties.
George: We had a few ex-servicemen start school this year. John Saferian, Alfred
LaBrecque, and then Bill Coveney of the famous Coveney family.
Marge: Yes, I noticed a lot of servicemen in the classes.
George: Yuh, they noticed you, too. Well, see you later kids.
Ed: In at the Boston Garden Captain Carleton MacKenzie and his track team
won the State Class B Championship. They put Weymouth on the map.
Yup, Mr. Page did it again.
Marge: Bob Stitt, one of the track standouts, was elected class marshall right
Ed: For pastime the kids could go to the Canteen on Saturday nights, and then
there was the projection club under the direction of Mr. Ghiorse.
Marge: This year the girls had their own volley-ball teams. The varsity basket-
ball team won laurels for themselves, being the only team to defeat Rock-
land, State Class B Champions.
Ed: We ended the season with six wins and eight losses. Coach Gannon missed
a game lor the first time in his coaching career at Weymouth.
Marge: 1 understand Coach Jim Steele had a good wrestling team this year. Led
by Captain Dick Swan.
Page Twenty 'X^-'
En: The baseball team had a good season, too. Bui let's leave the subjecl of
spoils. The Senior Prom was one ol the big events of the year and was
really a success.
Marge: And now we find ourselves lu re ai the finale of Weymouth High
Follies. We'd heller gel out of our caps and gowns; we've got a lot to do.
Tonight after the reception we'll he saying good-bye to all this. Let's say
il in a big wax.

Kurt Konrad, Chairman
Jack Clancy Hall
It was a warm spring evening. Through the window of a small house a coz)
room could be seen. Someone was leaning over the desk at which he had been
studying. It was Kurt Konrad, asleep.
He stirred; (hen he stood up. Walking as il in a da/e, he 1 weni to the window,
threw il open, and started chanting:
"Spirit, white and fleet v,
Spirit of the powerf ul Apollo,
Attend me; lielp me to pred ct
The happenings of tommorrow."
Alter he had repeated this several times, the form of a handsome youth
materialized before the window.
"What is it that you wish from me,
Spirit of the god of prophecy?"
Then Kurt explained that the work of the members of the Prophecy Com-
mittee, of which he was chairman, was to predict the future of their classmates.
Because of this, he had thought the Spirit might help and had appealed to him.
"I will do all I can for you. Follow me into the future," whispered the Spirit,
"and I will point out what will be happening ten years from now." Carefully
the Spirit led the way through the years to come. Soon he stopped and pointed.
"This is 1956," he declared. "Whom do you wish to visit first?"
As Kurt mentioned the name of each member of Weymouth High's grad-
uating class of 1946, the Spirit showed him what that person was doing.
When Kurt returned to the present, he hurriedly called a meeting of the
Prophecy Committee and made this report:

be applied to the deeds of a nation. Any aetion of a unified country in civil or in
foreign affairs, leaves a record in the acts, strong or weak, that follow it. American
deeds in foreign policy have been left for all to see. f am looking at that record which
begins in the 1700 s and ends at the turn of the nineteenth century.
In the years immediately following the Revolutionary War, when we Ameri-
cans had just acquired the right to call ourselves a country, our only foreign policy
was a desire to secure the recognition of the Old World. This recognition came at a
time when we were the least able to accept it. France, in the midst of a war with Eng-
land, had sent a representative to us, demanding that we keep our promise of 1778 to
aid her. Because we were in an unstable condition as a result of our own revolution,
we made a shrewd statement in reply. We contended that we had entered the agree-
ment with the former monarch of France, not with the present Jacobin regime.
France, however, was not our only challenge. Great Britain, with her trading posts
in Canada, and Spain with her control of New Orleans were inciting Indians to re-
sist us at every turn. Since we were not strong or united enough to cope with these
problems, Washington out of sheer necessity, in his farewell address urged a policy
In 1812, however, we made an exception to this idea of isolation, when we went
to war with England. Neither country desired the conflict, but public opinion over
here forced the decision. When the treaty was made two years later, it provided
for the return to the conditions which prevailed before the war. The boundary of
Canada was fixed, and the Missisippi question was open for negotiation. The real
reason for our rejoicing, however, was that the causes of the war were removed. The
Indians had been driven back, and Napoleon had fallen.
At the conclusion of the wars in Europe, we were free of commitments in the
Old World; we had purchased Louisiana and Florida, and were well on the way to
expanding these new gains. We considered ourselves ready to go back to our isola-
tionism, and to insure this, we published the Monroe Doctrine.
The Monroe Doctrine is a statement which has become the cornerstone of our
foreign policy. The Doctrine was prompted by the actions of Spain, who was trying
to get back her New World Colonies, which had declared their independence. To
prevent Spain's obtaining aid from Russia, Austria, Prussia, and France, President
Monroe declared that this hemisphere was not open to colonization, and that such
an act would be viewed as unfriendly toward the United States. This assertion has
had a great influence in all our decisions, especially those concerning wars and
Nevertheless, on several occasions, we have stepped out of the tight little circle
which the Monroe Doctrine makes. For many years, we were interested in the rapid
expansion of the West, and the necessary industries springing up as a result. It was
in these times of great confidence and prosperity that we made our first digression
from the Monroe Doctrine. We had been settling on any land that we chose, and
when we wanted to annex Texas, Mexico became angry. War followed, and we de-
cisively vanquished the Mexicans, in a conflict which might have been averted with
<r5Sl> Page Thirty'seven
a little diplomacy. Several years later, we did pay Mexico for damages. Bui whal
( an be paid for lives?
In the next few years, foreign policy lay forgotten, because internal trouble was
fomenting. The question of slavery kept us more to ourselves than ever, and the n tin
Civil War broke out.
A second step from our voluntary isolation was the purchase ol Alaska. This
brought us our first possession which was not attached to our country, and which
pushed our influence to the northern Pac.fic. Although this purchase helped to de-
velop the importance of the West, there was another reason behind the acquistion.
The Russians had been settling there, and as we wanted isolation at any cost, we
bought Alaska to prevent foreign influence.
Our first major break out of isolation came with our interest in the Latin Amer-
ican countries. This interest has continued to the present time, but it is now called,
"The Good Neighbor Policy." fames G. Blaine, our fiery Secretary of State, fought
to establish a Pan-American Union with all the South American countries. When
the Union was formed, Blaine secured a tariff reduction for those Latin American
countries which would reduce their tariff rates. These countries were suspicious ol
our moves, as well they might be, for we had conquered our own country and were
looking for new fields. When our drive to the Pacific had been completed, we had
begun to realize that our foreign policy was outgrown. Capital, which had financed
the Westward expansion, began to look for new markets. We were steadily acquir-
ing more islands in the Pacific ostensibly to be used as coaling stations by our en-
larged merchant fleet, which was now tr ading with the Far East on a large sc ale. Our
naval fleet too, was increasing. We began to realize the power we had in our resour-
ces and trade, and to believe that we were a great nation, capable of exerting our in-
fluence throughout the world.
With this concept newly formed, it was natural that we became involved in t he-
Cuban situation. Our concern lay in the fact that we owned millions of dollars'
worth of interest in the sugar, tobacco, and mines of the country. With the Monroe
Doctrine in mind, we felt ourselves obliged to help our neighbor Cuba. The insur-
rection of the freedom-loving Cubans against their cruel Spanish rulers, was steadily
growing more complicated. Neither Spain nor we wished to go to war, for our com-
mercial interests were at stake, while Spain might have trouble at home. The Amer-
ican newspapers inflamed the people here with reports of the De Lome letter, which
maligned President McKinley, and then, the Ma ne was sunk! Without considering
what caused the explosion aboard the battleship, the public screamed "Remember
the Ma ne!" The President set the question of war to Congress, but did not deem it
necessary to add that Spain was ready to give Cuba her freedom. Congress declared
war. Our enlarged fleet came into use when we captured the Pacific possessions ol
Spain. After this short but dec sive, war, we found ourselves with several new
possessions; Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. We were coming out of our
In orre hundred years, Amer'ca had gained recognition, and with this recogni-
tion, the power to turn her back on foreign entanglements, declaring that she
wished to be left alone. The experiences of the twentieth century would prove the
value, wisdom, and strength of this policy in keeping America a world power.

^American Foreign Policy"
r^V» Page Thirtymine
■Let us now continue the progressive history of our foreign policy beginning with
the twentieth century. Since 1900, this policy has been divided into three distinct
parts: our action in behalf of our United Stales and the other countries oi this hem-
isphere; our interest in the Far East; and our concern in European affairs. In the
Americas, we undertook to follow the tenets set forth in the most influential docu-
ment, the Monroe Doctrine. As a self-appointed protector oi our less significant
neighbors, the United States exerted uncalled powers ovei parts oi Latin Amei ii a.
In order to defend those countries and insure our own interests, we forbade nations,
such as Germany, England, and Spain, to set foot on that land in accordance with
our interpretation of the before-mentioned doc n ine. Also, as a major power in
world affairs, our country sent delegates to the Hague Conferences and supported
the Hague Court before which all nations might present their disputes lor arbitra-
Since the Spanish American War, our attention has been definitely drawn to t lie
problems of the Far East. Having gained control ol the Philippines as a result of
this war, our country noticed that other nations of the world were busy grasping
for influence in China. Their struggles had not concerned us or worried us until we
were in a position to request trade with China on an equal looting with the test ol
the world. We initiated in China "The Open Door Policy", which guaranteed out
equality and prevented China's being split by her more powerful neighbors. This
move on our part strengthened our friendship with her.
Then as Japan began to enlarge, the United States, seeing an opportunity lor
furthur trade, befriended her also. Although Japan was growing more powerful
and was expanding, we did not use caution in regard to her. because she
seemed so small and dependent. We continued to supply her with all ty pes of ma-
terials which she allowed to accumulate over a period of about two decades.
Early in the twentieth century, the countries of Latin America began to grow
more independent. They resented the arrogant attitude of the United States, and
we, realizing their desire to be completely self-reliant, changed the character of our
policy, fnstead of being their dominant protector, we entered into an agreement in
which all the countries of this hemisphere vowed to help each other in time of need.
Our attitude was that of a friendly equal rather than a haughty superior. This be-
came known as "Our Good Neighbor Policy."
For many years, the United States has taken an indifferent point of view in
European affairs. Notwithstanding her active participation in the Hague Confer-
ences, she has done everything possible to keep out of foreign entanglements. In
1914, our country was forced into a war, supposedly to end all wars, World War I.
Many of our young men were killed beside equally courageous soldiers of different
nationalities. Nevertheless, despite this strong bond brought about by our common
struggle and subsequent loss, our nation maintained its policy of isolation. In 1918,
Woodrow Wilson tried to guide us to the place we had among the nations of the
world, but we were not yet ready to declare our hand. The League of Nations was
formed without the suport of one of the greatest nations in the world, the United
States, although we agreed with most of its aims and principles.
However, in order to preserve the peace we had struggled for and prevent an-
other war, our country accepted the agreements of the Washington Conference in
Page Forty c \S r '
1921 and the London Conference in 1930, boih prov iding lor Limitations of the na-
val power and armament of the principal nations of the world. In 1922, the United
States sponsored and signed the Four Power Pad along with Great Britain, France,
and Japan; then, later, the Nine Power Pact with involved several smaller nations
as well. We were also included in the Pac t of Paris in 1928, supported by fifty-six na-
tions and stating that all disputes were to be settled by arbitration only, not by vio-
lence or war. Some reciprocal trade agreements that we entered should have made
clear our responsibilities as a leading nation of the world.
When Franklin Delano Roosevelt came to power, he found us still wary of en-
tangling ourselves. During prosperous years our people saw no need to interfere
with other nations and borrow trouble; during depression, the whole interest re-
volved around maintaining a livelihood. The United States did not build up her
armed forces as a measure to protect the agreements she had entered; Japan did not
comply with the treaties she had made; other nations broke their promises and di-
saster was again hovering over us. Gradually, our nation became aware of the ne-
cessity of preparing lor this second great struggle. With the attack on Pearl Harbor,
America finally went all out lor war. We became a nation of action then — a nation
to demand respect. We realized that new inventions had decreased the size of our
protective ocean. Roosevelt had just before formulated the Atlantic Charter with
Churchill. Several other important negotiations were carried on between our pres-
ident and the leaders of Britain, Russia, and China. Conferences at Moscow, Cairo,
Teheran, and San Francisco helped to compose our new policies.
At these conferences, the countries of the world laid the foundations for one of
the greatest organizations of all times, the United Nations. Now that the war has
ended, we have begun to concentrate on making a success of this great union which
guarantees peace and security to all countries. There are six principal parts to the
organization: the General Assembly, that functions mostly as an adviser; the Securi-
ty Council, that has the final say in all matters; the International Court of Justice to
settle all judicial questions; the Secretarist, a permanent steering committee; the
Econom cs and Social Council, which makes recommendations to the General
Assembly that fall under its category; and the Trusteeship Council, consisting of na-
tions with trust territories.
Every far sighted American realizes that there will be many trials, many dis-
agreements, but each hopes that the United Nat.ons will be unified enough to over-
come these obstacles. As we have the experiences and the mistakes of the League to
profit by, results should prove more extensive than before. An organization, such as
this, if loyally supported by every nation, will become a fair judge of international
affairs and will guarantee everlasting peace, thus carrying out the principles advoca-
ted by our first President, George Washington, when he said, "Observe good faith
and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace, and harmony with all".

The Weymouth High School Band, under the capable baton of Mr. Russell Jack,
has ended a most successful season.
The activities of the band varied. The group played at assemblies and was
present at a great many of the football games during the fall. Also the band partici-
pated in two highly praised concerts in January and in May. The success of these
concerts was partly due to the good selection of the music by the director, Mr. Jack.
Robert McAuliffe was chosen student band master during the year.
Our hats are off to the future musicians of Weymouth High.

Concert and furnished many selections at the Senior Play.
With the addition of many new members, the orchestra is becoming more

well as our wish for success in years years to come.

The Weymouth High School Choir ended its second successful year under the new-
director, Mr. Jack, with a spring concert in which the orchestra and choir together
performed well-known selections.
This past year has been a busy one for the choir. Besides the spring concert
there were also the winter concert and a performance given for the Monday Club.
Six members of the choir, along with seven members from the orchestra and
band, went to New Britain, Connecticut, where the New England Festival, the
first since the close of the war, was held. Members of bands, orchestras, and choirs
from all over New England were assembled there, and even though the work was
tiring, everyone enjoyed himself.
Bigger and better plans in regard to the choir ate being made for next year.

^V-Zn February 15, the Senior Class presented the three-act play "Every Family
Has One," a delightful comedy of family life in these United States. Miss Helen
Chase directed the production.
The plot centres round the Reardon family, whose eccentricities are hi-
larious. The problem of the three Reardon children, Marcia, Penelope, and
Warry, provide many amusing moments, but a wise grandmother leaves her
Bing Crosby records long enough to straighten everything out.

-1 his year's football team certainly had its share of tough breaks and ups and
downs. Although Weymouth started off with a bang in polishing off Rindge Tech,
the next four games spread gloom throughout Maroontown for Belmont, Brook-
line, Quincy, and North Quincy all grabbed wins from Weymouth. Undaunted,
however, Weymouth leaped back to the victory list by smashing Cambridge Latin
and Dedham. Next Brockton and Arlington, two of the better class A teams, were
forced to fight for every inch as they got by Weymouth. Then Thanksgiving Day
came and with it one of the best Hingham elevens of the past few years. No team
had scored more than one touchdown against them, and they had decided it was
about time to beat Weymouth. The Maroons had other ideas, though, as they
battled their way to a thrilling 12 to 6 victory for Coach Paul Sweeney, who was
watching his last game as Weymouth's football coach.

a lopsided Hingham defeat, a close call over North Quincy, and the game that
made the whole South Shore sit up and take notice — that is the upset of the
now class B champions of the state, Rockland. This was Rockland's only Mass-
achusetts defeat, Weymouth's biggest victory.

^C>rack! comes the sound of bat against ball as Weymouth drives out another
hit. Yes, the baseball team is making a name for itself this year. Up to date
the maroons have four straight victories won from North Quincy, Quincy,
Braintree, and Milton.
Back from the war and out of the United States Navy is Coach Harry
Arlanson. Under his capable eyes the candidates for the baseball team played
many inter-squad games, giving him a chance to see what everyone could do
and therefore form the best first team.

^^restling, coached by Mr. Steele, gained popularity this year by leaps and
bounds. In eight exciting matches the Weymouth grapplers polished off Per-
kins Institute twice, Needham twice, and Worcester Academy once, while bowing
to Andover, Exeter and Milton Academy. Crowds of fans (especially girls)
were attracted to the home contests to see such muscle men as "Ripper" Ben-
nett and Captain "Diver" Swan in action. They were well rewarded by seeing
Bennett, a junior, add to his last year's string of wins to make it thirteen straight.
The first team consisted of:
110 lb. Class — Dick Swan, captain
121 lb. Class — Jack Bennett, captain-elect
128 lb. Class — Gerry Hackett

^ViiEN the snow had melted and spring was here for good, Coach Oral Page
took his track team from the boards of Libby Field to the cinders of Legion Field.
With unusual strength in every event the maroons are making it tough for
all the opposition as their excellent winter record is continued.
This year's South Shore meet will be bigger and therefore more exciting
than last year's due to the addition of three more schools; namely, Quincy, North
Quincy, and Brockton.
Following this comes the toughest test of the year, the state meet held at
Newton, in which every runner exerts every ounce of his strength and skill.
May the future track teams of Weymouth continue the good records of
sportmanship and victories as those of the past.

hen the average high-school student hears about cross-country, he has little
or no interest for this sport, which is actually the toughest of them all. However,
this year's team, under the coaching of Mr. Page, has made the fans take an in-
terest, so excellent is their record. Nine times Weymouth raced in dual meets,
and nine times they brought home victory. Facing much tougher conditions in
the state meet at Franklin Park, Weymouth placed fourth among twelve schools.
To name certain members of the team as "stars" woidd be wrong for everyone in
the above picture deserves equal credit for this great season.

The national resurgence toward chess is reflected in the strong interest in the
game at Weymouth High School. Although many learned the game from their
"GI" brothers or fathers, a number were taught by the club sponsor, Mr. David
Matthews. The Round Robin Tournament gave opportunity for each member
to compete against the various styles of play acquired by each of the players. Refer-
ence books were used for observation of the methods of the grand masters of chess.
These, together with individual instruction in the openings and checkmates b"
Mr. Matthews, laid a basis for sound developement in play and future success in the
sport. The group should be ready for interscholastic participation next year.

JL his past year the cheerleaders of Weymouth High have proved themselves
solidly behind their various athletic teams.'
At each football game they were seen, rain or shine, cheering for the boys.
Their attractive maroon and gold outfits added much to their action. The cheer-
leaders were also present at many of the basketball games showing their great
spirit and sportsmanship. The entire scpiad also attended the Winter State Track.
Meet at the Boston Garden and were honored with a special invitation to be present
at a track meet held at the Fargo Barracks in Boston.
The able co-captains were Margie Kelly and Shirley Osborn, whose duties were
to conduct many of the student rallies and turn out a capable line of cheerleaders.
In all, there arc five seniors leaving this year and making way lor an almost
complete new group to be led by Priscilla Schlusemeyer. We extend good luck to
Priscilla and the coming cheerleaders.
